Created from a partnership with Yamaha, the new edition comes in a choice of seven striking colours and sporty features.
With 17-inch matt black alloy wheels, painted brake callipers and optional matching Abarth side stripes and mirror covers, there is no mistaking the new 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition.
Darkened windows, a flat-bottom leather steering wheel, aluminium pedals and a special ‘Yamaha Factory Racing’ badge – all standard – enhance the model’s sporting credentials while Xenon headlamps, leather interior and dual zone air conditioning are among the options.
Powered by an upgraded version of Abarth’s potent 1.4-litre T-Jet engine, the 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition is further enhanced with a Record Monza exhaust system, Koni shock absorbers with FSD valves and Eibach lowering springs.
“The new 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition adds a new dimension to the Abarth 595 line-up” says Gerry Southerington, brand manager, Abarth UK. “With an upgrade to 160 horsepower, lowered suspension, sporting looks and a great sounding exhaust system, we expect a lot of interest in this car from Abarth enthusiasts and new customers alike.”
The Abarth 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition is available to order in the UK now, priced from £17,420.
The Alfa Romeo MiTo and Giulietta ranges have been enhanced by new trim levels.
A Collezione trim is available in the MiTo from £17,660 and Giulietta at £24,820, while a new Sprint Speciale joins the Alfa Romeo Giulietta range at £23,320.
